“Storytelling has been a big part of my life, and I always want to convey that and write songs that are true to me because music’s the biggest part in helping you through anything in life, be it a bad breakup or a good time. Any song about being 16 again, makes you go back to that time in life,” Bandi said in a release. “I think love is the most universal theme in my music because everybody has experienced all different sides to it. For the most part, everybody’s experienced a bad breakup, and everybody’s experienced the honeymoon phase and stuff like that. I try to put a little bit of love into every song. I like to write songs about who I was growing up at home and how I got to where I am today.”

Odenton, Maryland native Jackson Dean is a singer/songwriter known for his old school, gritty style of Country. Mature beyond his years, Jackson has a daring and carefree spirit, having moved out at 18 years old to live in a cinderblock, concrete floor, one-room shack on the back of his grandfather’s property with no heat and no plumbing. Bringing that same sense of adventure to his songwriting, Jackson writes both independently and alongside outliers like Luke Dick, Kevin Costner & Modern West’s Park Chisolm, and everyone in between. Gearing up for his forthcoming project to be released via Big Machine Records this year, Jackson shows people how real music can be as he captures the reality of the life he has lived. Following an early career of local performances in his hometown, Jackson has joined bills with artists such as Kane Brown, Jake Owen and Brothers Osborne.
